Well, I blew it. I had it on my calendar to give you a SUPER guest today, and my calendar ran off without alerting me. Yes, it's my calendar's fault. I'm sticking to that story.
So our SURPRISE guest will continue to be a surprise until I get her post up. Argh. Please tell me you make mistakes, too. I'd hate to be the only one.
Until then, I've got a super recipe that absolutely must be shared during the summer and a super giveaway.
Giveaway first: My next book, STIRRING THE PLOT, comes out in just a few weeks. September 30. Today, I'm going to give away two sets of the first two books in the series. That's right, FINAL SENTENCE and INHERIT THE WORD. If you already have them, you can always donate them to a library, family member or pal. And I'll throw in a Cookbook Nook/Cheese Shop mug to boot! So leave a comment and remember to leave your email, in case.
Now, for the recipe.
Do you love barbecue? I do! And I have to admit I'm a red meat eater on occasion. No more than once every couple of weeks, but there's something about a good juicy steak that makes me salivate. Also, I feel better the next day, so I'll bet my anemic blood cells need that boost. Again, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it! :)
I found this recipe...rather, my HUSBAND, found this recipe in the Food Network magazine. He loves that magazine! The pullout section they have with "50 ways" to do something...this time, beef...really appeals to him. He can read them out loud as if he's doing a poetry slam. Each of the "50" are about 50 words or less. Very cool.
So, here you have it. I would bet this recipe would work well with chicken breasts and pork, as well, so if you want to go leaner, try it! I intend to.
